Regal Ware, Inc. announced Ryan Reigle will take on the role of company president and CEO. Ryan will succeed his father, Jeffrey A. Reigle, who will now become Chairman of the Board.
“We are fortunate to have someone of Ryan’s caliber and experience step up to lead Regal Ware,” Jeffrey Reigle says. “Ryan is a visionary with a proven track record of execution. He is a strong communicator who is customer focused with deep leadership capabilities. He is the right person to successfully implement our strategy while delivering exceptional value to our customers.”
Ryan began his career with Regal Ware in 2007, working in sales and management before being promoted to President of Saladmaster in 2016. After growing his division by 20%, he was appointed to Senior Vice President in 2019. Ryan was elected to the company’s Board of Directors in 2018 and is a fourth-generation descendant of Regal Ware founder J.O. Reigle.
“There are three members of the fourth generation of the Reigle family working in this business,” Jeffrey says. “I cannot think of any other indication of our commitment to the business and the community than to have members of the fourth generation of the family come back and want to be part of the organization and helping to build the future.”
Ryan’s new role as President and CEO will officially be effective March 18, 2021.
“I am honored to step into this role and excited to lead Regal Ware,” Ryan said. “When I reflect on Regal Ware’s past, I see a history of progress, not a progress of history. Here at Regal Ware, we made things happen and made the world a better place. Reflecting upon how that happened, it only happened one way. It’s around the great people that have made up this organization for the past 75 years. I am fortunate to work alongside an incredible team of global employees and sales leaders to fulfill our mission of enriching life by bringing families together across the world.”
